Squid are coming through really good right now and I gave it a try for the first time in my life. I caught a few and had a great time. It's pretty different from fishing as there is no fight and not much skill involved, but it was still a lot of fun heading down there with other members from our fishing meetup.

I love taking photos and try to take photos that are unique and 'out of the box' over most of what you see.

Regarding the squidding - It was fun, easy and I cleaned them this morning - 4 gave me a small cupful of calamari to cook up. I'm right now trying to figure out a lighting system that is portable that I can haul down there so I'm not dependent on others.

Oh yeah - another thing. They squirt ink out when you catch them. Don't think they're empty by the time you haul them up! The little bastard in the last photo shot ink on my face and jacket right as I was getting that photo of me taken

Pier 86? I've never been squidding before, definitely wanted to try it out this year, it looks fun! i don't live far from there. How big a light do you need?

Hey Jon - Last night was my 1st time so I was 'borrowing light' from those that had lamps. Where were you? I fished off pier 63 downtown, but that was only because another person in the fishing meetup posted the event and I had never been squidding. I'm closer to Edmonds but willing to go to where I can catch my limit.

Seattle Pat, Edmonds pier is packed, but it seems to be doing well, a lot of people use "okies" to differentiate their lines from others. I've tried it 2x now, only had 2 total, but it was interesting,...a handful of people bring generators, I might fish for salmon close to those who are about to jig for squid, then when they start, I'm there,..but yes, having your own light source helps,..PM me, interested in getting out again,..

What I tend to do after I hook into the squid is bring it up and let the buggers spray as much "ink" out before I bring it all the way up. That way my clothes stay somewhat the same color as when I left the house.
